   First edition. [7], 57, [2]; [5], 7-72 ff. folio 325:185 mm., wide margins, usual light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed.
   First edition of these discourses on the weekly Torah portion by R. Judah David ben Jehiel Rottenberg. Although printed separately in two parts this volume is complete, both parts being present in this copy. The title page gives R. Rottenberg’s distinguished genealogy and then adds that this volume is on Bereshit and Shemot gathered from the holy sayings in the Talmud, midrashim and Zohar, all combined here to reveal that which is concealed and to disclose that which is hidden. These novellae on the Torah were in manuscript by the rabbis, sons of the author until they took it upon themselves to publish them for the public good, specifically mentioning R. Jehiel Joab. There are approbations from R. Zevi Hirsch Aaron, R. Hayyim Halberstam, R. Samuel Schmelke, R. Menahem Mendel, R. David Deitz, and R. Hayyim Sofer. There is a brief introduction from the printer and a much lengthier one from the author’s son. At the end of part one, on Bereshit and Shemot, is a list of the individuals who assisted with publication. Next is part two with its own title page but like text. This part too has a lengthy introduction and its own foliation.
